If any band can claim to have kick-started the current UK Prog revival, it is Diagonal. The band’s self-titled 2008 debut album threw open the gates for a wave of like-minded bands to follow, attracting a heap of critical praise and picking up a nomination for Best New Band in the 2009 Classic Rock awards for good measure.
 
And then, just as suddenly as they had arrived, Diagonal disappeared. The departure of founder members Alex Crispin (Vocals/Keyboards) and bassist Dan Pomlett forced Diagonal into an unexprected hiatus.
Diagonal needed time to regroup, to re-build. Original guitarist Nicholas Richards switched to bass and the band slightly stripped down their sound.
 
The Second Mechanism is the sound of that band reborn, ready once more to propel listeners on a journey to the outer reaches of rock music. But this is a more focused, more intense, more powerful Diagonal; a gleaming amalgam of Passport, Jaga Jazzist, T2, Dungen, Magma, Bo Hansson and Black Sabbath, forged in the crucible of experimentation.
 
The normal rules do not apply here; there is only the obsessive, unashamed spirit of eclecticism and no-holds-barred musical excess. Thunderous and hypnotic; euphoric and brutal, Diagonal is uncompromising in its approach and fearless in the creation of music which combines Prog, Jazz, Psych, Krautrock and Metal into an intense and explosive mixture which seems to belong to neither past, present nor future, yet somehow sounds like all three.
 
 
 
 
 UNCLE ACID & THE DEAD BEATS 
Bloodlust
Formats: CD/ DL
 
Who are the mysterious cult phenomenon known as Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats? We are not able to shed much light on the identity of this drug-crazed coven of freaks but their addictive blend of heavy, melodic and garage horror-rock sounds have already taken the underground by storm.  The popularity of this anonymous bunch initially stemmed from people discovering tracks uploaded by them to Youtube, without any other hype. Two extremely limited self-financed mail order only Cd-r only albums were released (Vol 1 & Blood Lust) and interest in the band grew rapidly.
A vinyl edition of Blood Lust was released in 2011 by Rise Above Records and sold out instantly. Demand for this vinyl edition set the record collecting market on fire, with first pressing copies fetching up to £700 on eBay. It was re-pressed on vinyl a second time earlier in 2012 and again sold out in minutes with the Rise Above Records website crashing under the strain of a staggering amount of hits.
 
All of this has happened without any live performances or clear photographs of the band ever being published. Whilst the electrifying quality of their music is unquestionable, their true identity still remains a mystery. All of this is about to change when they are finally unveiled for their hugely anticipated debut live performance in London, UK on March 22nd. A second date on 23rd March has been added due to the high demand and the first night selling out in a very short space of time.
 
Signed to Rise Above Records, they are due to enter the studio on Halloween 2012 to record their first full-length album for the label, which is due for a March 2013 release. In the meantime we are delighted to be giving the already legendary Blood Lust its’ first officially licensed release.
 
Blood Lust brings back the dark spirit of true rock and roll as conjured up by this anonymous cult of horror worshipping fiends. Uncle Acid has come to kill!
 
⚑ PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A RE-ISSUE. A BRAND NEW STUDIO ALBUM IS DUE FOR MARCH 2013.
